In America, nearly 80 million books have been printed, a figure unprecedented for any other books. In 1998, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was published in the United States, kicking off a Harry craze. Suddenly, kids were reading again, and their parents wanted to read the same books!

  Language and Culture Tips

  fashion model: Fashion models are people employed by fashion houses to show off their new designs. Top models like Claudia Schiffler and Naomi Campbell may appear in fashion shows in Paris, Milan, New York and London in the course of a month. They are also wanted frequently by fashion magazines to be photographed wearing the latest styles.

  fashion show: Fashion houses hold shows to present their latest creations. Attractive models in the world appear from behind a door and walk down a long raised runway, stopping, turning, posing as they go, all with the purpose of showing the advantages of the new designs. The audience is often made up of media representatives, buyers for chain stores, and wealthy individual shoppers.

  5'8": 1 foot is approximately equal to 30.48 cm, and 1 inch is about 2.54 cm. So, 5'8'' is nearly 173 cm.

  Credit cards and debit cards: Credit cards such as VISA and MasterCard are frequently used by people in Western countries to pay for goods and services, and therefore, they do not have to carry large sums of cash with them. Debit cards are gaining popularity because the payment is immediate, while payment by credit card will not be made until a few days later.

  In Western countries some students do part-time jobs to pay for part of their living expenses or even tuition fees.

  Background information: When the song first came out, bikinis were new and many girls felt "exposed" when they wore them. It took a while for them to get used to bikinis. The song is meant to be a humorous look at fashion: This is the first day the girl wears such a swimming suit. On the one hand, she wants to follow the fashion of wearing a bikini. On the other hand, she is shy about being seen in public in such a revealing swimming suit. At first, she is afraid even to come out of the locker room. Then she sits on the beach, but covers herself with a blanket. Finally, she does get into the water, and stays in water even though she is turning blue with cold.

  "Itsy bitsy" and "teenie weenie" are both infrequently used slang expressions that mean very small.(You do not open your mouth wide when you pronounce these words.) They are now used together to help create the impression that the girl's bikini swimming suit is pretty skimpy!
